Laughter and screams filled the air in Princeton, IN on Sunday as they continued their 135th Labor Day celebration.

The festivities kick-started Friday and will continue through Monday.

Gary Fitz, a volunteer for the event says he's thankful to spend time with the community over the holiday weekend.

"Labor day is like, you come out here and you see people that you haven't seen for a year or years," said Fitz. "I walk around out here and it's hey how are you doing I haven't seen you for the last couple of years, well in a lot of cases we haven't seen anybody in the last couple years so that's kind of nice to be able to renew those friendships."

The largest labor day celebration put on by union members in Indiana the festival offered a variety of activities for people to take part in.

A rummage sale, car show, and demo derby were just some activities people took part in.

But a fan favorite for many kids like, Scotty Ciggers were the rides.

"We were like upside down for like 5 seconds and then we started going back down," said Ciggers.

The food was also a fan favorite for some who attended the event.

"I couldn't help it, I mean a corn dog kept calling me so I had to, you know," said Fitz.

As the fair comes to an end after Monday, officials look forward to bringing it back next year.
